2011 in review

Well I can't say it was a horrible year, yet not an overly great year either.  We sure have grown since we've moved out here together though.  Here's to hoping/praying that 2012 is an amazing year for us! 

Drove up South Mountain
Explored Lake Pleasant

Went to see the Montezuma Castle
Spent the day at the balloon fest at Lake Havasu City

Spent a week w/just my Dad here doing lots of "guy-like" activities such as showing him S. Mtn, a Nascar truck race, outdoor expo, & a spring training baseball game.

Spent a ladies week w/my Gt A. Char & her friend Sandy where we went to a wine & art fest, shopping, hiked Camelback Mtn, cooked, & walked around the Desert Botanical Garden.

Celebrated my 27th Birthday in Tucson & saw the Kartchner Caverns
Saw my first "broadway show" Billy Elliot with a great group of ladies
